Eddie Williams, a first round draft pick (# 4 overall), was a top prospect for a long time of whom great things were expected. However, he kicked around the majors for ten years without ever playing as many as 100 games in a season. He did, however, have one terrific season in 1994, hitting .331 with a .594 slugging percentage while getting a mere 175 at-bats.

Williams had an extensive minor league career, playing fifteen years. A peak was in 1997 when he slugged .738 for Albuquerque in 76 games. He also slugged over .600 in 1994 and 1998 in Triple A ball. All told, he had 183 minor league home runs.

He hit 2 home runs on July 17, 1994 as a member of the San Diego Padres against the New York Mets. Pete Smith was the pitcher. The Padres won the game 10-1.

Originally a third baseman, he was a first baseman for the second part of his major league career.
